Experimentation within black metal isn't exactly something we're entirely unfamiliar with as a collective whole. Botanist, Gnaw Their Tongues, Pensées Nocturnes - all bands that push boundaries and bring something unique to the table. They think outside the box and are either praised or hated for it.

Oh baby I'll be reviewing this.

Just finished my first listen. Definitely an enjoyable album first time around, although the intro reminds me of Miserere Luminis' "Cineris". Which isn't a bad thing. That song rocks.

It's not as good as Beyond The Watercolor Sunset, We Feel New Life, it's drony and ambient moments are less mesmeric. It's undeniably a highlight though. Looking forward to your review.

The title is extremely pink, right? Can't tell if I dig it or despise it.

I don't know if it's pink, but it's cheesy and silly and, as with most cheesy and silly titles, pretty true. It has some sort of balance and it's composed of nice words. It has rhythm and stuff. *crazy word lady*

I hate cats. But I watch tutorials on long hair styling and have an obsession with bows and lace.

It's just a matter of traching them (yeah, that is possible...). Nothing to fancy... just "Don't get on the table" and "fuck off I'm bussy" are enough.
It's incredible what you can do with a bit of water in a bottle.

I love you, I really do.

Back on topic:
Wait, the entire album isn't one gigantic track like the last time? Fucking sellout(s).

(seriously, though, can't wait for a review and a proper listen)

It's relevant.

When you lose all hope and every relationship you've ever been in has met its end, you get a cat. As the years go by and your level of solitude increases, you get more cats.

Cats: for the brokenhearted.

You know, this title pisses me off.

What the hell is the feeling of sadness, if not sadness itself? If you're feeling sad, you're actually sad. The "feeling of feeling" construct is excessive. Long titles have their geeky appeal, but they should still be to-the-point. "...and Couldn't Shake an Overwhelming Sadness" would be much better.

Yeah, I am very upset about this!

He probably titled it that just to piss you off.

Yeah, I can understand that artists' creative processes revolve around my person, but they should know better than to provoke me in such an unclassy way.

Seriously though, I liked this album a lot less than Beyond The Watercolor Sunset. In general, I think this band might do well to rein in their creative urges and focus on releasing a honed, complete album every few years. There are just too many meh moments here.
